Who is an optometrist and what does he or she do?

Why do eyeglasses cost so much?

Eyeglasses are a complex optical device that is manufactured with high-precision equipment. Often expensive materials are used for the glasses. All of this explains why eyeglasses can be expensive.

What should you do before buying glasses?

Let's look at what to look for when buying eyeglasses. The first is, of course, quality. The second is the choice of lenses of glasses. Here we focus attention on the material: they can be either glass or plastic. The third is the choice of frames.

What's the difference between expensive glasses and cheap glasses for vision?

The quality and accordingly the price of the lens depends on the presence of coatings on the lenses. The higher the price, the more coatings on the lens. Coatings make our vision more comfortable. Lens manufacturers do not stand still and improve the quality of lenses.

How do I know which glasses fit my face?

It's best if the width of the frame is equal to or slightly larger than the widest part of your face. The upper line of the frames should coincide with the line of eyebrows. Smooth shapes of glasses will emphasize rounded curves of the face. To emphasize high cheekbones choose the "butterfly" or "cat-eye" glasses.

Where can I see better with glasses or contact lenses?

With lenses, you can see better, so it turns out that extra obstacles don't distort the image. Lenses don't shed dust, don't catch glare from the sun and don't distort peripheral vision-no matter where we look, the image stays sharp.

The seating is terrible. Uncomfortable for just a few minutes, but since our appointment took over 2 hours, it was simply unacceptable. This cattle operation is way too slow. And we still haven't got to our doctor yet. I will update after that. Update: Dr Brumitwas great. Supposedly we will have new glasses tomorrow. I have raised the rating one star in hopes that all will go faster and trouble free from here on.

Not really pleased with my experience here. People were initially friendly, the girls up front were pleasant and quick. The girl who did the exams with the machines was sweet and talkative and seemed to know what she was doing. But the machines weren't really clean. I paid extra for the field test and I'm not sure how accurate it was because the lenses of the machine were foggy from bad cleaning. Things went downhill after that. The doctor acted like my appointment was an inconvenience and rushed through everything so quickly I'm not sure how accurate he was. I was done in about five minutes and then he asked me to come back in because he forgot to write down several things. I found several glasses I liked but I ended up paying double what I was expecting. Nothing was broken down price wise, the lady helping me rarely had a definitive answer on anything. If you do decide to give this place a try check the added fees for anti-glare and the like. One pair of glasses I picked I was charged $25 - per lens- for the anti-glare, the other was $12.50 per lens. She wouldn't explain why and I gave up and paid and left. If you looking for a cheap deal and don't have a large prescription you might be happy here, dependent on the doctor, but if you have bad eyesight you aren't going to save any money and you would be better off going elsewhere.

An absolute bunch of CON MEN! I went in on Thursday to ask about getting glasses. I picked out the frames that I wanted and they were $69 each so I could get two for $79. Then I asked about the cost of getting no-line bifocals and was told that would be an extra $30, so that bumped the price up to $109. Then I asked about the cost of getting the coating to prevent scratches and was told that it varies but would be between $25 and $30 which made the total $139. I even gave them my vision insurance information and was told that it would pay part of the cost. I thought "Wow, that is a good price" so I set up an appointment for the fillowing Wednesday. I went in on Wednesday and had my examination then once again found the same frames I had selected previously and was told to sit down with a young lady who would set everything up. After she scanned my glasses and pecked on her computer for a couple of minutes she told me that the cost for my glasses would be $388 (plus tax). I told her that I had asked very specific questions about the cost of glasses when I made my appointment and I was told something very different. Her response wasn't curiosity or surprise, she simply said "Yeah". Which makes me think that this is a VERY regular thing. If someone is not already investigating this business for fraud, they should be.

Is zero stars an option? A horrible and wasted time experience. After we had waited over 2.5 hours for a scheduled appointment, we left. No one kept us updated on why it was taking so long. I asked twice…the first employee said she would check and she never followed back up with us and then she walked out of the front door and the second person seemed frustrated when we asked. We did watch more employees standing around talking and taking smoke breaks then working. Next time we will go to a different optometrist. Not worth it. Very unprofessional.

The people were friendly and caring, but the overall process is questionable to me. If a person has an appointment, I think the process should be more seamless. After every procedure, you go to the back of the line again. If you can't refine the process, the next step would be to invest more in your customers' comfort. I sustained some severe injuries a few years ago and the cheap plastic chairs took their toll on me. I spent the next day recovering from my visit to Visionworks.
